In The Home Stretch

Aug 18, 2008 + , ,

I'm on pins and needles folks. Granite countertops are going in tomorrow (tomorrow!) and appliances will be in at the end of the week. That means we will have a functional kitchen soon. HandyMan worked his tail off to get the trims and baseboards finished. It was a bit of a hassle because our new drywall is thinner than what was there originally so the door frames sat out from the drywall. But HandyMan, being the perfectionist architect that he is, shimmed everything up and made sure all the awkward door trims lined up. I'll post some pictures of the trims and granite tomorrow, but in the mean time, here's some of my favourite details in the new kitchen...

The ribbed glass door fronts...


Full extension drawers with dovetail joints AND soft close. Plus, the cabinets are frameless construction so the doors cover the entire front of the cabinet box...


Pull out shelves in the pantry...


Pull out spice drawer...


And the pendant light over the sink.


And here's a sample of the drawer handles (though the ones we got are in a brushed finish). Don't you just love the rectangular cup pull? They tie the whole vintage/deco look of the kitchen together.


I'm so ready for this to be over -- take out food lost its appeal weeks ago, lol.

  1. Love the handles, but the S.O. won't.

    Those dovetail drawers are sweeet.

    If I could get the flatpack kitchen cabinet suppliers to get their act together I woulda been ahead of you :)

  13. GMS - and I've got a bigger 9" one beside the sink for baking items - flour, sugar, baking soda etc. I so love an organized kitchen :)

  14. Gorgeous, gorgeous, gorgeous!! My cabs look almost identical from the outside, so of course I love it. :)

    I am jealous of your pantry. Mine ended up being tiny-skinny so the stupid fridge would fit. Haven't blogged about it, but my expected 5-week delivery for countertops was shortened to one week. eek! I should have tops this weekend.

  17. I love your backsplash. Is it marble? What kind? Do you know of any websites that carry it?

  18. Bethany - the backsplash is a carrera marble in 1"x2", honed finish. I got it in store at http://www.saltillo-tiles.com/. Sorry, I don't know where you can find it online.
